If your having problems with the saw bogging down when cutting, it definitely sounds like the TH100085 motor is having problems. Before you replace it, take the motor to an electric motor repair shop in your area and see if it is some that is repairable in the motor. Then go from there.
My motor is starting to make this loud sharp squeak when I turn it on. I manually turned the belt and didn't notice and bumps or abnormalities, and suggestions? Also I started getting really bad burnout on my wood lately which means the blade is out of alignment. Don't have the manual and I've never done it on this saw yet. Any help?
Thanks a lot in advance.
It sounds like you might have a bearing or two on your motor that have gone bad. You can test them, by unplugging your saw first, then remove the v-belt. Plug your saw back in and turn it on. If you hear any squealing or grinding noises then your bearings are in need of replacement before they do any more damage to your motor. Take your motor to a qualified electric motor service center and have them replace your bearings. As for the correct procedure on aligning your blade with the table. Contact the manufacture for an owners manual for your model number and I'm sure they will send one out to you. Or you might try looking on line for one also.
What you can do is remove the old capacitors out of the motor and get the information off the capacitors.With this information you can find replacements from ebay, granger and any motor shop.Hope this helps.Good luck.
The wrenches were lost for my saw. I obtained two from a TS2400LS table saw and found one will fit the nut but I have nothing to hold the shaft while loosening the nut. I located/borrowed a thin 7/8 " that matches the machined surfaces on the shaft so I can change blades. Question: Are the two wrenches called out in the manual different sizes or do I need to order 2 from link removed. Thanks. Sepp
The Ridgid TS3650 table saw does use two wrenches that are the same , but each wrench has different ends, one to hold the shaft and one to hold the blade nut. The part number for the wrench is 822384-1.
I have a Ridgid Model TS3650 that has no power. It was working fine and then the motor sounds like it does not go into the run phase of the rotation. It starts up fine but never kicks into the power phase of the cycle.
The motor is a capacitor start motor. It has a rotating switch, a stationary switch, a starting winding and a capacitor in a circuit that gets the motor running. The rotating switch could be stuck on the shaft not allowing it to move axially. The stationary switch has a contact on it that could be welded closed, or the capacitor could be shorted. Look at the capacitor and check to see if it is discolored or smells bad. If nothing is obvious there then start the motor and carefully remove one of the wires connected to the capacitor and see if that solves the problem, that would mean the problem is internal if it goes away. The capacitor is on top of the motor under a hotdog cover, short one. let me know more.
I just ran the numbers of both accessories through the Ridgid Distributor parts look up system. Unfortunately both items show as discontinued with no replacement. We do not have either item in stock. Your only hope is to find one that is still in a retailers inventory.
I hope that this helps.

Sears carries a good quality molding head with an ample no of optional cutters available. I have one and I love it.
Just did the same thing. I however could not get the arbor nut free. Ended up busting the arbor housing in half. Looking at the bearings I think they are pressed onto the arbor then into the housing and need to be replaced any time the arbor is replaced. Did you finish your repairs? Any tips?
